The South African Revenue Service is currently in a transformation process, which entails investigating every possible option to advance with and stay abreast of changing technology and to thereby assist in simplifying the tax responsibilities of SARS clients. SARS realise that time is valuable, and with the added security risks of our times that no effort should be spared in upgrading services to our clients. To this end the electronic transmission of information is now in a process of investigation. In order to ascertain whether such a service would be favourably received and most importantly utilised by SARS clients, SARS will be conducting a survey on SARS Online. Various services will become available pending the outcome of this survey of which the following are a few examples:
The taxes included are Customs, Excise, Income Tax, Value-Added and Employees Tax.
The survey will run until 29 January 1999. Be assured that all comments/recommendations will be taken into account.
Electronic feedback may be submitted via the SARS Online Web site www.sars.gov.za.
Telephonic or written comments may be addressed to the following:
